The President and First Secretary of the Party, Cde E. D Mnangagwa has sent his condolence message to the family of the country’s first Covid-19 victim, Zororo Makamba.

The Ministry of Health and Child Care announced yesterday that Zororo Makamba died at Wilkins Hospital after succumbing to the virus.

Speaking during a televised press briefing from State House last night, President Mnangagwa shared his grief with nation saying “Sadly in one such case- the latest to be announced-the patient has since succumbed and died. On behalf of the ZANU PF, government, my family and on my own behalf, I wish to convey my deepest condolences to the family of the late departed on this saddest loss. We share in their grief and join them in bereavement”.

“The sad passing on of one of our own, as well as the spiralling infections and deaths worldwide, require that we continue to urgently review our situation with a view to strengthening our defences through additional, more stringent measures. Like I indicated in my previous address, we might have to limit, suspend or even forego social, economic and recreational activities we had grown accustomed to. The pandemic today challenges all our normal chores, habits and behaviors and we all now have to adapt to a new, unusual social culture.

Meanwhile, stricter measures have been put in place including a ban on non-essential travel and traffic in-bound and out-bound, an enforcement of a 21-day self-quarantine for returning citizens, a blanket ban on gatherings around night clubs, bars, beer halls, movie houses, swimming pools, gymnasiums and sporting activities until further notice among others.
